Welcome to The Mopar Dude website, your source for resto services, project cars, and parts.
We are still just north of scenic Burlington, Kansas, on US highway 75. Its half-way between Burlington and New Strawn, or exactly 13.9 miles south of I35 exit 155. If you are going to stop by, call ahead and we can give you easy directions from just about anywhere. Make a note of our new phone numbers, located on each of our pages.
Currently, we are in the process of scaling back operations in the shop. Recent losses in my family have caused me to re-align my sights on the future, and some changes will be made. I simply wont be able to spend the time in the shop that it currently requires. That and the fact that Hot Rod City Garage (our supplier of custom gas tanks and radiators) was sold and does not supply us anymore. Combine those 2 factors with the unpredictable supply of new rim shells from our supplier, and you end up with a fight that just isnt worth the effort. It has alway been a struggle to have enough new rimshells or centers to make wheels available in a timely manner, and it has only become worse with time. We did a lot of business with Hot Rod City over the past years and its unfortunate that they are no longer able to supply us with a quality product. After we finish what is in the shop for customer builds, its going to be strictly in-house owned projects. We will still offer project and complete cars for sale, as well as assorted used and new pieces for your project.
Our goal is to provide parts and cars at a price that is affordable to the average enthusiast when possible. This being the age of information, its becoming harder to find cars and parts priced where we can sell them to you economically. Everybody seems to get a distorted view of values after watching televised and internet auctions, and it becomes difficult to find a 'good buy' to pass on to you. Suddenly, Elmer that has a $300 turd in the fence row, thinks its worth $3000 because cousin Clem thinks they are selling for that much on EvilBay. Just makes us shop smarter and thins the selection to choose from. Therefore, we may not have the largest inventory, but what we do have is priced right.
Thanks again to all of you that help make us who we are. Without your loyal support, we would still be working in the gravel out back under a blue tarp.
